Why would he face a conflict resolution process?
There is no reason I can see to conflict with a transitional package,
However, for git in squeeze, it’s a moot point. The 'transitional'
archive section and front-end support for it  would be needed, or
else the newly installed git package will be marked as automatically
installed and promptly removed again.
Thanks for the comments.
